    While the acting and props are left to be desired, the series brings gay people and gay marriage to Star Trek universe, front and center.

    Considering that this, incredibly, is an all volunteer effort, this greatly exceeded my expectations. I didn't know about the gay angle before viewing, so that was especially gratifying.

    The props looks like they did in "The Original Series" (TOS), which appeared on TV for the first time for three seasons, from 1967 to 1969. I saw most of these original episodes when they first came out, and they were 'state of the art' at the time.

    Paramount allows these volunteer created episodes as long as nobody gains financially, so all of these volunteer episodes are free; and as long as Paramount is properly credited as the owner of Star Trek-related intellectual property. So there will never be any ads, unless you watch the episodes on YouTube.

    Here is a link for hard core Trekkies who want to invest dozens of hours to see every volunteer created episode. Some of the earlier (pre-2000) episodes have really poor acting and production values, but the more recent ones are much more professionally done, in fact, they are as good as the Paramount episodes:
